Director of Operations & Subsidized Housing,
Phoenix & Cottonwood Campuses
Susan O'Connell is the Director of Operations and Subsidized Housing for the Phoenix and Cottonwood campuses. She joined the Christian Care Fellowship Square family in 2017.
Susan was born and raised in New York. In 1988, she married a wonderful man, and together they have two successful children. She began her career in 1992 as an activity director for a HUD-subsidized property in Rockville Centre, NY. She earned her HUD Subsidized Housing/Property Management certification within her first year. Susan worked for that same management company for 23 years, managing over 790 Section 8 elderly/disabled units before moving to Arizona in June 2015.
When Susan arrived in Arizona, she accepted a position as Executive Director for a new independent living, 55 + community in Peoria, AZ. Although she loved her new role, she felt a calling to return to serving low-income seniors. Susan joined the Christian Care family in October 2019. She says, "I am so happy to be a part of Christian Care, and I hope to continue leading the subsidized senior housing program for many years to come."
